As a newly minted Assistant U.S. Attorney in Washington,
D.C., Anna Curtis has already developed thick skin to deal
with the brutality she encounters with her daily stack of
domestic violence cases. Yet when Laprea Johnson walks into
Annaâ€™s lifeâ€”battered by her boyfriend on the morning after
Valentineâ€™s Dayâ€”thereâ€™s something about this particular case
that Anna canâ€™t quite shake, something that reminds the
prosecutor of her own troubled past.
At the trial, Laprea
makes a last-minute reversal, lying on the witness stand to
free her boy-friend. Shortly after he is freed, Anna is
horrified to hear that Lapreaâ€™s body has been found in a
trash heap. Hastily assigned to prosecute the murder case
alongside intimidating chief homicide prosecutor Jack
Bailey, Annaâ€™s heart sinks when she learns that her own
boyfriend, public defender Nick Wagner, is representing the
Torn between bringing the killer to justice and
saving her personal life, Anna makes a series of choices
that jeopardizes her career, her relationships, and her very
life as she uncovers the shocking truth behind the murder.
Weaving expert knowledge with deft storytelling, federal

Allison Leotta takes readers on a thrilling ride through
D.C.â€™s criminal justice system. From the back rooms of the
U.S. Attorneyâ€™s Office and the flirtations and machinations
of Washingtonâ€™s Ivy League lawyers to the struggles of its
poorest citizens on the gritty streets of Anacostia, Law of
Attraction is a gripping debut from an exciting new talent.
